The Stormy Day Your Kids Rocked the Program

The Clouds Are Coming and The Junior Smokejumpers Are Jumping!

Yellowstone Nature Connection maximizes getting kids to move. We sometimes even have nature on our side. This Stormy summer day could not stop these kids and family from having fun and learning something new.

This large family group had grandparents and parents and children, all learning something new about the Northern Rocky Mountains and fire country. Being from fire country in the south, they could understand why we needed defensible space around Grandma’s cabin in the woods.

They came to learn about smokejumpers, and had fun with the match-stick forest experiments. They learned about fire, fire ecology, clothing and tools of a smokejumper. All the kids tried out the pull up bars and several did very well.

All the kids experienced trying on or wearing a piece of a jumpsuit as the got their instructions from our Jump Master. They lined up and jumped out of our mock plane. Seven kids from ages six to 12 all got to wear a smokejumper jumpsuit and helmet. Some of the suits may be a little big, however, it give the kids room to grow for next year. And the Jumps they did were spectacular!

The Junior Smokejumper Program® was great for all!  Here are the pictures of everyone.
